Flowcine Black Arm Dampening Camera Mount (Complete System)

Black arm 3-axis dampening system additional vibration mount


The Black arm is a 3-axis dampening system with additional vibration mount for stabilising roll and tilt errors as well as vertical motion and vibrations.


The Black arm is a hardmount system, made for gimbals, that you want to mount on vehicles such as cars, ATVs, boats, snowmobiles etc.

The Black arm Complete is the uprated version designed for users working with higher loads and carries between 5-32kg (11-70lbs).

The Black Complete ships with four 7.0mm springs and four 7.5mm springs, that takes the entire range of 5-32kg. You can use the springs in single (one spring on each side) or dual (two springs on each side) configuration, to precisely achieve the lift needed.

The damping action of all axes, vertical, tilt and roll is created by custom made actuator hydraulic dampers that are fully adjustable. You adjust the damping with a knob that has 22 steps, to precisely dial in the exact amount of damping you need for your shot. The Black Standard ships with one damper for each of the three axes, while the Black Complete ships with a total of six dampers, allowing for dual dampers on each axis if needed, or as spares.

Tranquilizer Anti Vibration Mount Supplied As Standard

The VMI Black arm Complete system is supplied with the Tranquilizer anti-vibration mount with shore 30 and shore 40 ‘O’ rings to support.

The Tranquilizer ships with two sets of polymers, the shore 30 and shore 40.

Softer shores (20/30) are best suited for lighter rigs and/or flat (regular car) road. Harder shores (40/50/60) are more suitable for heavier rigs and/or offroad (ATV) driving. Weights below includes eventual passive plates.

Flight Case

The Black arm ships in the Pro case. It’s made in all-black, to perfectly match the Black arm. It features powder coated black metal corners, heavy duty recessed handles and butterfly catches. It also has wheels, so you can roll the case just like a cabin bag. To match the clean exterior, the foam in the Pro case is all black.

Mounting Options

Mounting the Black arm is as simple as clamping it on to a standard 48-52mm speed rail. You build a rig onto your vehicle, using standard grip components like speed rail and dual clamps, possibly using Flowcines Universal rack or Stub mount. Then you simply clamp the Black on there, with the two single clamps at the back of the arm.

There are several ways to attach your gimbal to the Black arm and the VMI kit includes a Mitchell female mount as well as the base plate including hole patterns to match the Freefly Toad in a hole and Cinemilled Universal Ronin mount for easy attachment of the MoVI and Ronin gimbals.

On each side of the Blacks head, there are cheese plates suitable to mount batteries or Kenyon gyros on.
